    I've got some serious problems with my touch here.

    It's stucked on the apple logo at the beginning. Nothing happens. I have tried to force it into restore mode, but the iPod doesn't even show up in iTunes, so I cant restore it. Doesn't work to restart it either..

    And a last thing, I cant SSH into it.....

    In other words; NEED BACKUP!

    Yes, it restarts when I hold down the sleep button and the main button.. And that's all. It doesn't show up in iTunes, and i think it has to do that if i'll have any chance to restore it?

    Not working.. When I press the sleep and main button, it turns off. But i can't turn it on while holding the main button. Still not showing up in iTunes. The PC doesn't understand that the iPod is connected or something.

    But thanks for trying though..

    Try Putting your iPod into DFU mode (Device Firware Upgrade)..
    You do This By:

    Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button

    Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button

    Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it. It should restart with a blank screen. Look at iTunes, and your device should be removed. Now lift the Standby button, while still holding onto the Home button.

    Step 4: Keep holding the Home button until the iPod reconnects on iTunes. When the device shows up in iTunes, that’s when you’ll need to lift up your button. If you wait any longer, it will go into Recovery Mode, and that’s not what you want. Your iPod should be blank.

    Step 5: Now iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recover Mode. You can now perform a manual restore on it.

    You should then be able to restore your ipod touch!
